In Isaiah 55:11 God says his word shall not return to him void, but it shall accomplish that which he pleases and it shall prosper in the thing where unto he sent it. Well, the only way his word can return to him is if someone speaks it. God has invested power in your words and his words are the greatest power. In the Book of Proverbs the Bible says a lot about your words. In Proverbs 12:6 it says something interesting it says- "The mouth of the upright will deliver them." And Proverbs 12:18 says "The tongue of the wise is health." So God is showing how to receive deliverance and even healing by the words that come out of your mouth. And that's backed up by what God says in Psalms 50:23 "Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conservation aright will I shew the salvation of God." Now, God himself said He will show you salvation based on the words that come out of your mouth. So the words of your mouth are very important. Just like God told the childern of Isreal in Numbers 14:28 "As you have spoken in mine ears so will I do unto you." Again God speaks of doing something according to the words spoken. So the things you want God to do you should be speaking. In Romans 4:17 it says God calls things that be not as though they were. In other words God speaks what He wants to see and not what He sees. Like in the beginning in Genesis 1 you read where God said and it was so. Well, before He said it wasn't so, but He spoke to make it so. And in verse 26 "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness... ." Notice He said in our likeness so you should be speaking what you want to see. Like God says in Joel 3:10 "Let the weak say I am strong." See, you speak what you want to see and not what already is. But, it's not just speaking, but speaking in line with God's word. Because it's God's word that shall accomplish.
I agree Franklin that as children of the Most High God we should declare the word of God. Joshua 1:8 says This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.We need faith to tackle different situations in our lives. WHY? - Because Hebrews11:6 saysAnd without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.Now to have faith Romans 10:17 says So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.I am Gods work in progress ... and humbly encourage all to take an inventory of the time we take to meditate on the scriptures- and to seek His face. I am guilty of failure here, and am trying to change. I must say that the grace of God is abundant.Please can i request believers who come to SI to share their experience of success or failure in this area.It will encourage it will teach- it will bless -Jesus loves.
